Wyldcliffe Abbey School for Young Ladies, housed in a Gothic mansion on the bleak northern moors, is elite, expensive, and unwelcoming. When Evie Johnson is torn away from her home by the sea to become the newest scholarship student, she is more isolated than she could have dreamed. Strict teachers, snobbish students, and the oppressive atmosphere of Wyldcliffe leave Evie drowning in loneliness. Evie’s only lifeline is Sebastian, a rebellious, mocking, dangerously attractive young man she meets by chance. As Evie’s feelings for Sebastian grow with each secret meeting, she starts to fear that he is hiding something about his past. And she is haunted by glimpses of a strange, ghostly girl a girl who is so eerily like Evie, she could be a sister. Evie is slowly drawn into a tangled web of past and present that she cannot control. And as the extraordinary, elemental forces of Wyldcliffe rise up like the mighty sea, Evie is faced with an astounding truth about Sebastian, and her own incredible fate.
From what I remember about this book it was kind of odd and different. The book is two stories that eventually becomes one. One story is from the past and is told by Lady Agnes and the other story is from the present and is told by Evie. Evie is shipped off to a school where she discovers Sebastian. However, they could only meet at random times. To me their whole relationship wasn’t very convincing. I didn’t really see the love. Evie and Agnes have a strong connection and a lot in common. By the end of the book an interesting plot has developed by the story is still a little bland. If you are a patient reading I would recommend this book.
The next book in the series is Betrayal followed by Eternal
